I was coming back to you, but the snow stopped me by d-s-foto I was coming back to you, but the snow stopped me by d-s-foto
Italy, Milan, 2012
Last week Milan and in general Italy, was under snow and ice. All the communications and movements were very difficult.


From this the title of this small story...


This picture tells a snowy evening, a metaphor to look back at our past loves and how we decided deliberately to land them. Was it for a cause stronger than us that, indeed, we could not fight?

Or was it just a whim, and we found an excuse, like snow, to make end happen? Looking at this photograph surely you will not find the answer, but, maybe, you'll see in its mirror some of the time you decided that you would not turn back...

Please, which one of these "arco" it is? ...I live in Milano :ashamed: but I don't know! ...Is it the one close (in a way, not so close!) to the Castello Sforzesco?... :lol:
I wrote in English so everybody can read! ;)
...Nice photo by the way, really! ;)

E' l'arco della pace al fondo del parco sempione, dalla parte opposta del castello!!

"All the communications and movements were very difficult"?!? In Milan??? Are you joking?
Everything worked in the right way: here in Milan, streets were perfectly clean and the public transports didn't stop at all.


Nice pic, btw :)

Forse non sei stata in zona Loreteggio :-)
Lì c'era un bel po' di neve e dire che le strade erano "perfectly clean" è un po' eccessivo... Comunque ho apprezzato il commento e anche la tua bellissima galleria!

:iconaluccia71:
Aluccia71 Featured By Owner Feb 11, 2012
guarda, io vivo in periferia - non lontano da Lorenteggio - e solitamente parto di casa alle 8.10 per essere al lavoro - zona Linate - alle 8.50.
con la neve sono partita alle 8.20 per arrivare alle 8.50,andando piano... Milano deserta+strade pulite= viabilitā perfetta.
Le strade del mio quartire, residenziale, non erano uno specchio, ma ne sono uscita in scioltezza a bassa velocitā e con le gomme da neve (solo davanti, e ho una Ka, non un fuoristrada): anche scrivere che il Paese era paralizzato mi pare un po' eccessivo :)

Con cosa hai fatto la foto?
...e ancora complimenti per laDD! :hug:

d-s-foto Featured By Owner Feb 11, 2012
Ma non ho scritto che il paese era paralizzato! :-) La mia non era una critica, ma solo uno spunto per spiegare la genesi del titolo.
La neve porta sempre un po' di disagio, anche in cittā bene organizzate come Milano. Mi sembra che nel resto dell'Italia i disagi siano stati un poco maggiori.

La foto l'ho fatta con un iphone. Anche quelle che caricherō in futuro saranno solo fatte con iphone.
Vedremo come saranno, ma mi interessa avere un filo narrativo che parta dallo strumento (rudimentale) per capire se si possono fare foto belle anche senza usare attrezzature professionali. Per ora mi sembra che le prime due settimane siano piaciute, non so se l'interesse sciamerā in futuro.

...pensa che chi non parla italiano.vedendo la lunghezza delle nostre botta-risposta, potrebbe pensare che chissā quale polemica si č innescata, e invece... stiamo solo parlando del tempo ;)

immaginavo l'avessi fatta con l'IPhone: ti darā grandi soddisfazioni.
credo che sia l'odierna alternativa al concetto d'istantanea, la polaroid del 21° secolo (adesso i fan delle pola, mi ammazzeranno).

se t'interessa, qui c'č il mio account "for Instagram users only" [link]

nel mentre, caro concittadino, ti watcho.
buona domenica!

Anche io uso istagram, ma non mi piacciono molto i suo filtri (a parte X-pro II e Earlybird).
Ci ho messo un po' di foto a colori, ma sul come funziona non ci ho capito molto.
DA resta il migliore
